Lush Lingo

Lush Kitchen / Kitchen Item

Up until October 2017, every Friday the Lush Kitchen team uploaded a menu of exclusive Lush items on to Instagram. They would bring back old products, much loved out of season products and sometimes they even introduced new products through it.

The products were made in small batches meaning they had a limited amount to sell – this is what made the Lush Kitchen items so very exclusive.  The Lush Kitchen was often described as the ‘Lush Hunger Games’, to avoid disappointment you’d have to be online and ready to order by 8AM (GMT).

Being super-quick online gave you an advantage as products were known to sell out within minutes. Sadly Lush closed their ‘Lush Kitchen’ in October 2017, much to the disappointment of the Lush Community.

Lush Kitchen Subscription Box

As of May 2020 the much missed Lush Kitchen made a return in a brand new format. The Lush Kitchen subscription box offers a selection of exclusive, vegan Lush products every month.

Each month the selection of products you receive are personalised by the subscribers vote, also included are a few surprises thrown in from Lush. Every month you receive 4-5 bath, shower and skincare products that you can’t get anywhere else.

The subscription cost is £35 a month (shipping included). If you want to find out more/want to sign up please go to the Lush website directly.

Lush Flagship Store

In 2015 Lush Cosmetics opened their flagship store in Oxford Street, London.

Up until March 2019, Lush Oxford Street was the worlds biggest Lush store, now Lush’s official flagship store is in Church Street, Liverpool.

This Liverpool store is currently the largest Lush store in the world and boasts a Lush Spa, Lush hair salon and a Lush Florist. I have used all 3 of those services since the store opened and cannot recommend them enough!


Have you been to a Lush store more than once? visited the Lush website ooo’d at their products? had a Lush bath/Shower? Then you’re a Lushie!

Lush Scent Family

Lush Cosmetics do so much more than mix random essential oils together. They master scents. Once a scent is mastered over a very long period of time (sometimes years) they create an abundance of products that share that mastered scent.

This is where the Lush term ‘scent family’ comes from, if a product shares the same scent as another new or old one, it’s a part of that scent family.
